Here is video of an NAACP representative on Fox News today where he defended Sen. Harry Reid as a "champion for Civil Rights." This despite comments by Reid were revealed in a new book where he said Barack Obama could be accepted by the American people because he is "light-skinned" and because he has "no Negro Dialect" unless he wants to have one. Reid made the remarks privately during the 2008 Campaign.
The NAACP Rep. said that Reid's words were "awkward, but not "offensive."
"The way he said it was quite awkward, but nonetheless, not offensive. That what he said was actually part of a calculus as to why he believed Barack Obama could be elected in this country today."Somehow, if any Republican had made these comments I doubt seriously this would be the reaction of the NAACP.
